Abstract

This article discusses and presents the text of an anonymous song entitled 'Do shagartaibh agus do mhinistirí' (To priests and to ministers'). Although the earliest manuscript copy dates from 1835, internal evidence strongly suggests that the work is associated with the Rightboy agitation of 1785-7. If this is so, the hostility it expresses towards the establishment in both church and state would tend to support the alarmist interpretation of the Rightboy movement advanced by such Protestant controversialists as Patrick Duigenan and Richard Woodward, rather than the anodyne accounts written by Arthur O'Leary.
